good morning to our viewers in the west. it's thursday, august 24th, 2017 and welcome back to cbs this morning. there has been a big old blunder this morning involving the winning powerball ticket. that's right. the massachusetts state lottery originally announced the wrong location for where the ticket that was worth $758 million was sold. but does it effect the winner? we'll explain. plus hillary clinton campaign manager and mitt romney's campaign manager are here in studio 57 working together to stop election cyberattacks but first here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> massachusetts lottery officials admit a big mistake

this threat is real. countries and intelligence services are going to attack our candidates and election officials. we have seen the proof of concept on this. if we don't deal with it in a bipartisan way and come together and say an attack on one is an attack on all, that trust will erode and we can't allow these countries to become involved in our elections the way say a superpack could. >> how would you describe how cyber hacking hurt the hillary clinton campaign? >> first of all, it's really important to recognize hillary's campaign was probably most prominent example but this has been happening. what was different and the way the threat has evolved is they are steeling information and putting it out into the press. we want candidates to get out there and talk about the issues. we want them to be heard. we want the a get the full debate. if we allow foreign countries to steal information and push it out there we are not going to have the debate and let foreign
